The Question of Biblical Capitalization?

Q. Why do some Bibles capitalize pronouns referring to God (He, His, Him, Himself), while others don’t?

A. Capitalizing pronouns referring to God seems to many readers (including myself) an expression of reverence. For this reason, a number of Catholic and other Christian publishers long ago adopted the practice. However, historically speaking, capitalization is a relatively recent development in typography.
